I have no idea if this is still relevant advice or if it is obsolete.

This is a great find for the student of combat shooting
This film gives very succinct instruction on point shooting with a wide variety of infantry weapons of the day. The basic principles are indeed still relevant. Point shooting was very much in favor during WWII and some modern instructors still teach it.
